draft poured a darkish brown color with off white head. the aroma pleasant with roasted malts and plenty of coffee and traces of chocolate. the flavor matches the aroma nice amounts of roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. almost a creamy texture but comes just short of that. solid example of a porter. lots of flavor and medium body. love this one

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on opening night, and didn’t get to take notes... Aroma is solid chocolate/coffee presence with slight herbal bitterness. Appearance is black with light tan head. Flavor matches the nose; good balance between coffee and chocolate. Palate is bubbly. Good porter.
